Question:

I have seen hand-held ammeters that can be clamped to buss bars. I have tried to find a vendor for this type of meter but have “struck out!” Do you know of any sources for this type of ammeter? A.V.

Answer:

I do not like to make equipment recommendations in this column, but since I have received a number of e-mails and phone calls on this subject in the last few months, I will make an exception.

The Fluke Corp. manufactures a number of clamp style ammeters that are ideal for use in the plating environment. They can be reached at 425-347-6100 or at www.fluke.com.
